From my experience, people at such a low point where they consider that feel they'd be doing their families a favour in some regards. They feel unfit for the world and that they'd be improving it by killing themselves.

There was also suggestion that Speed, a former Leeds, Everton, Newcastle United and Bolton Wanderers player, had recently learned that a tabloid newspaper was to print a story about his private life.
The Sun newspaper denied online accusations.
A message on the paper’s official Twitter account read: “No truth in this story. The Sun was not investigating Gary Speed in any way.”

While they would deny it, it sounds like nothing but internet rumours to me.

I really hope that is not the reason. What's the worst that could happen, a few silly chants from knob-end fans and a bit of hassle sorting things out with family?

I don't think this is true.

Suicide isn't the choice people are making it out to be in this thread. Suicide is perceived as the lack of choice. It is the ultimate consequence of a fatal illness.

I agree, but I can understand why people see it as selfish.

Gary could have been new start of football. If it was true.

Where have the Telegraph said that The Sun did have something on him?

The Sun is a vile disgusting tabloid. I hope the above statement they made is true, but it also wouldn't surprise me if it was not.

I strawberry floating hate the tabloid press with a passion but the bottom line is always that if people didn't want to read the tittle tattle they spew out then they could not exist. The public gets what the public wants etc etc.

The public gets from the press what they think we are interested in, or what they tell us that we are interested in.

Never understood the tabloid idea that being gay = scandal.

Because a lot of people still view gay as uncommon or not normal.

Tbh I hope the rumours are true (about the Sun planning on outing him or whatever). Then The Sun would really be strawberry floated and hopefully cease to exist.

The way Mark Lawrenson tried to stress Speed as 'normal' seemed very weird there. :?
